Yes, though I might do this:

if it is not empty then
   put it into tcomment
end if
# it will be empty if the user cancelled

# Although, in actual practice, when retrieving a value
# from "it" I always put the value into a temporary var
# immediately for safe keeping
put it into t_temp
# which I consider good practice because "it" can be
# changed by many other actions, and this way you get its
# value before anything else has a chance to change it

# so, my version would look like this

ask field "Prompt" titled "Enter your Comment!"
put it into t_temp
if t_temp is not empty then
   put t_temp into tcomment
end if
